I'm new to this but are there any other ports i can use other than port 80 (http), but does the same thing.  I have something using 80 and forwarding so i want to use another port for http.

Any port as long as it is not already bound.

You would have to browse to it using something like http://localhost:8080

8080 being the port number

What 4drahil said although I also suggest not using anything that is common for another purpose like SSH, FTP, HTTPS, etc.  Here is a decent wiki article.

4drahil's example of 8080 is a good one and pretty common.  Remember you'll either need to configure the web application to use the alternate port or setup the forwarding to make the redirect.

i used 1025, but that didn't work.   I had to activate port 80 again and it worked, but do not want to use port 80

I assume you have a web application/site of some kind that you're changing, right?

When you set it to port 1025, how are you testing?

Hello,

As far as ports concerned; you can use any ports from range 1025-65365. However, make sure that the port you are going to configure is not in use using with netstat -a command.

You simply need to change the binding from the IIS properties to the new port and need to configure appropriate forwarding and allowed from firewall if any if you are supposed to use website from cloud and web server does not configure with live IP.

Regards,
Sanjay Santoki
